Many people want, but very little have. Now we want to advise you how to change the situation for the better. You can take your ordinary furniture and distress it. It’s so simple! You need minimum skills and money and about 2 days of your time. Ready? Get on with it!
Let’s get back to our cupboard. We’ll take modern one and make it antique. First of all we should clean the cupboard, remove doors and hardware. Then we should sand the surface using a sander and sandpaper. The next step is primer and paint. We apply a thin coat of primer and then 2 coats of paint. The last one is applied by brush and then the previous is still wet. After that we re-sand our cupboard and put the finishing coats of stain and polyurethane. In the end we install doors and hardware. It’s better to buy another hardware in antique shop.
That’s all! Now you are a happy owner of antique cupboard!
Do it yourself activity is always a creative work. Sometimes ideas for this work are surprising and odd. For example, one of them is recycling jeans for interior design. What can be more unexpected? Let’s consider this idea.
Almost all of us wear jeans and have several pairs. Sometimes they get old or go out of date or we just get bored of them. You can throw them away. But if you are a DIY addicted person, you never do this. Why? You will make many cozy things for your house, of course.
The most essential part of regular jeans is their hip pockets. You cannot imagine how much you can make from them. Sew them down to any piece of cloth and hang it in your working area. It can be used for storage all stuff that you need working at desk: pens, pencils, markers, scissors, rulers, erasers, staplers and so on. Make coach cushion from jeans and you will never lose your remote control because it can be kept in hip pocket. Sew round some furniture with jeans cloth, for example, chairs, and they will become modern and jaunty. Make a jeans table napkin and put flatware in a pocket. It’ll look so coolly and graceful at the same time.

Stuff storage in a house gives you freedom to decide how it can be. There are so many ideas which you can bring to life with your own hands. If you like DIY activity, there can be much to do.
There are so many ideas because we keep things almost everywhere at home; there is something to store in every room. Let’s consider some examples. You can use jars for products and spices storage in your kitchen, for toothpaste and toothbrushes storage in your bathroom, for keeping little things, such as buttons, threads and so on. One more universal thing for storage is woven basket. It also can be used in every room. In bathroom you can keep towels in baskets, in bedroom you can put pajamas there, in kitchen you can use them for bread storage, etc. The next example is carton boxes. There can be kept not only shoes. Take color paper and other decoration stuff and make such box good-looking. Now you can use it like a jewel-case or cosmetic case or box for important little things. There are also many odd, but elegant, ideas like using a bottle carrier as a towel rail.

Floating shelves are very popular among DIY projects. They are simple to make, materials for them cost almost nothing, and they are very useful indeed. You can put on floating shelves anything you want. There can be your photos, some pictures, vases, something you brought from a vacation, even heavy stuff. Floating shelves are strong in addition.
These shelves were popular about fifty years ago and came back nowadays as any other good idea. We make them the same way as there and then. It’s just a box hanging on brackets which are hidden inside the box. Floating shelves fit minimalist interior design because they have no external visible holdings. They look as if they are “floating” on the wall.
And some practical advises in the end. If you are going to paint walls, do it before hanging shelves not to bedaub them. And it would be much easier if you paint shelves before install them. Floating shelves can be made from a half of hollow core door, so from two halves of the door you will get two shelves. And the last remark, these shelves are impossible to remove without breaking them, they are permanent. But there is no problem, because you always can make a new one.
To read or not to read? That isn’t a question for people who like reading, for so called bookworms. They read much and certainly have many books. These books need a place in a house and it would be better if the place is eye-filling. Let’s look through some DIY ideas how to make a wall library for a bookworm. Do-it-your-shelf instead of Do-it-yourself 😉
Bookshelves can be different. They can be ordinary and dull or unusual and fresh. What do you think about shelves in the shape of a tree? It seems to be a good idea, because of association that books are made from trees. Shelves can be located on branches or in the body of the “tree”. And what about two stepladders which with the help of planks form extraordinary shelves? It looks really great and can be used not only for books. Other idea is shelves in the form of words. For example, a word “READ” or a word “BOOKS”. There also can be shapes of people, animals, and others. Don’t forget about such a thing like bookmarker, it can be also a shelf for one book. Just put a stick at right angles to the wall and you’ll get two-in-one: shelf and bookmarker.
